  1. Pay for parking?
    We don't, but those that work in the city rather than the suburbs get the joy of paying for parking. Strangely, I don't find that as bad as charging patients/visitors for parking. Which the bigger...

  2. Going "Above and Beyond" UGH
    It's a bit better than the hospital constantly hitting the staff up for donations. But not much. :)

  3. Male patient refuses Female Nurse
    One: You probably need to get that on a medic-alert bracelet. Because in a trauma, even if it's in your pocket, nobody is going to see that until after they've cut your clothes off and are looking...

  4. Male patient refuses Female Nurse
    A billion years ago when I worked at a nursing home as a CNA, I had an awesome DON that happened to be male. We were short one day and he was working the floor with us lowly aides. Went to change...

  5. CPAP on the unit
    I'm not sure why hospital CPAP can't be used on a med/surg unit. It really doesn't require more monitoring than I'd be doing anyway except for responding to the occasional alarm.

  7. Press Release - allnurses Survey Says Nurses are Bullish on the Industry Outlook
    Is there anything being said here that is being taken as "Perhaps next time we do a survey, we could do a better job," or is it all being taken as, "People here are too stubborn to realize what a...

  8. All Men Shift
    I've got a few male coworkers that have their stuff together. Don't mind working with them. Perhaps I should rethink my desire of not allowing men to be hired at all.

  9. Why are there no nursing jobs available for new grads?  What is going on??
    If one needs to stay in their area, then one needs to research the job market in THAT AREA before getting a degree. It's like saying, "I want to be an astronaut but can only work in Arizona, why...

  10. Male patient refuses Female Nurse
    Obnoxious doesn't equal lawsuit worthy. If it did, I'd be suing half the people that post on allnurses. (And I'm sure some would be suing me.)

  11. CPAP on the unit
    Because as a billing department, they don't have to do anything without orders (and thus reimbursement). It's like, "Why does nursing have to troubleshoot instead of PT coming to do it?" Because...

  12. Male patient refuses Female Nurse
    Two staff in the room is for the protection of the provider. If the patient doesn't want that, as a provider, I'm going to be telling the patient to deal with it or go elsewhere. Whatever my gender...

  15. CPAP on the unit
    I had a family member with a home bipap machine. Was told something about a valve was different and thus why the hospital mask we brought home wouldn't work. I don't think every machine requires...

  16. Pyxis report question...being falsely accused!
    If more than one nurse can access those patient drawers, you're screwed. Who is to say what's in those syringes when you go back is still what you put in originally? Who is to say it will still be...

  18. Nurses being forced to go back to school
    I'm sure if you asked our patients what was more important to them, they'd only care about which one brought them their drugs the fastest.

  19. The DEU Model of Nursing Education
    It's great for students. For staff though, it's not so good. You won't get better staffing, so you get stuck with all of your regular duties, PLUS a student to teach all day. More work, same time,...

  25. The nurse you dread working after
    Just because there's a GT, it doesn't meant he patient needs the head of the bed elevated. Just because a form doesn't say it, doesn't mean the patient doesn't need it. Need to think about what...
